As I mentioned, a couple of posts ago, I recently started a new job as a bank auditor. So far everything is going really well. It does mean I’m traveling for work more, usually just day trips around Wisconsin.
What I didn’t think about until this week, though, was a hidden perk of that.
I was planning for yesterday’s audit, which would take me about two hours from home. My route would take me through Cambridge, Wisconsin, where I learned of a delightful little yarn shop called Kaleidoscope Fibers. The knitting gods were good yesterday, Tuesday nights are the night that they are open late, so I was able to pop in on my way home.
The store was super cute, and the lady behind the counter was friendly. There was a great selection of yarn, but I exercised some self-restraint and only left with two new skeins.
A skein of Uneek Fingering, by Urth. It is a delightfully soft superwash merino in a lovely combination of jewel tones.
And a skein of Sock It to Me by Hearthside Fibers. It is a lovely Superwash polwarth wool, hand dyed in nearby (to Cambridge) Johnson Creek, Wisconsin. It is white with red and yellow.
I’ll have to remember to check for nearby local yarn stores before heading out on audits from now on.
